I have one of these in the backyard for power.


Yet it's still not enough power!

Each time you drove past me last night on the practice server, all the lights in my house went dim.
cost me about 2 seconds a lap too.

Your well and truly setup for excuses already, should have one prepared for any poor results by now Dick.  ;)

I've got dozens more Marty! These ugg boots for starters..

and a poor result? I'm hoping I will be that good. :D I've had a few pathetic results. i hope to move up to poor. Or maybe just lame.

I was in amongst it last night. You guys might have been practicing, but my 2:06's where hard work race laps...

 We are pleased to announce that the three top-voted by the public have been confirmed for production, to delight of fans:
 Alfa Romeo 4C

 Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI
 Other Alfa Romeo models  will be unveiled soon. We'll be happy to share with our fans the making of this beatiful italian cars that will be reproduced with the maximum fidelity

That is such great news, I can't wait to try out the new cars.

Is the Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI in the same class as the BMW E30 Group A?

Exactly!  The GTA will be fun, I hope.  It was great in GTL that's for sure.

at least one Alfa Romeo car model will be included in the 1.0 version of the game

I would love to have new cars. At the same time I think version 1.0 will be at least 12 months away. AC is great but even to a noob like me can see there still is a very long way to go before this game is truly finished.

So this is why Rob's install of AC kept breaking down, it's just getting used to how an Alfa operates. :o :P :P

I just wonder how the physics of these mod cars will be. The Lambo in netKar never felt quite right.

The physics are always the thing not many mod groups managed to get quite right, surprisingly the ones that did are now mostly working on other sims professionally. There may still be a few physics guru's to turn up but unless someone has real data and know how to interpret this properly to get the most out of the sim they are modding its always going to be a bit behind official content.

I was under the impression that AC worked on RL data.
You measure the suspension (and other bits), put that in and that's what AC uses.
No tricks or short cuts.
I guess with the release of the tools this could be easily verified. :-\

If that was true it'd be a helluva simulation...I suspect it's not as clear cut.

Oh yes, the good ol' soapbox!
Or is it the replica?

Edit: nah, it's the soapbox.  Love that rumble, and man isn't it easy on the shifter...! :D
